Bring your own device and activate with T-mobile, get a $300 Costco shop card
Max 2
June 18-24, 2021

Members only. In warehouse only.

to redeem the offer online, go to mypromochoice.com, the promo code is M00004307

Fine print:
For all approved rebates, please allow up to 14 weeks processing time to receive your Costco Shop Card.
If you qualify for this rebate your Costco Shop Card will be mailed to the address you provided during rebate redemption up to 14 weeks after submission. Other terms and conditions: Offer is only valid on promotion dates above. Rebate is only valid if handset is activated at Costco Warehouse. All submissions must be redeemed online no later than the 30th day from the date you activated your qualifying service. Carrier service must be active at time of redemption to qualify. Costco Shop Card cannot be delivered to PO boxes. Return of qualifying device will result in forfeiture of Costco Shop Card offer. Limit 1 rebate per BYOD activation. Limit 2 rebates per account.

My experience:
I activated a line there this afternoon on my grandfathered Simple Choice plan. I called two Costco around me, one requires me to convert my plan to Magenta, the other one doesn't, so I naturally went to the latter. They also required me to actually bring the device over, than just bringing the IMEI#. I guess they want to make sure I'm actually the device owner.
I wasn't charged a SIM card fee or an activation fee. The whole process was very easy as my rep was really laid back. He did have to call the T-mobile retail service line though, because somehow my account was mistakenly labeled as "FlexPay account", which didn't make sense to anyone but they were able to fix it. My rep had to provide some sort of authorization code to T-mobile over the phone though, I'm not sure what exactly.
After I got home, I realized that the new line I added had a $45/mo data plan on it, as T-mobile's system no longer offers our grandfathered data plan by default, so I did have to make another phone call to T-mobile to get that fixed.
Overall I think it was worth my time for $300.

Do you need to transfer a number or can they assign you a new one?

No Port-in required. They'll assign you a new one.

The promotion requires the line to stay active for 90 days.

I did this yesterday. New customer, three lines were ported. Only one rebate form printed and the other wouldn't print the rebate form at which a manager came in and told me that they'll email me a form or they will file it on by behalf. Just wondering if anyone had similar experience?

I was actually planning on stacking it that way but they excluded simple choice last minute... So yes, I assume you can go to Costco to add a line, then call up t-mobile to add on the additional, since Costco shop card is registered through their own rebate portal. But feel free to verify with T-mobile that "if I add a line in Costco, can I get a free line later with this BOGO code?". Just don't mention the shop card thing to T-mobile I guess.

A few of us ran into the same problem on a previous deal in March; we didn't get our rebate forms printed at the time we added our lines. The kiosk guy entered an incident ticket and said we'll get the rebate form through email. None of us received the rebate forms after weeks of waiting. In the end, Wireless Advocates will have to manually submit your rebates.

I suggest that you go back to the kiosk and ask them to print out a copy of your incident ticket because that's the proof that they owe you the rebate.

To get them to submit the rebate, you'll need to do one of the following:

1) wait a week or two, and complain to the Costco store manager about your missing rebate

2) file a BBB complaint

3) call the Wireless Advocates customer service number and you might get lucky if they submit your rebate (only 1 person got this to work). Most of the time, they'll give you the runaround and tell you to talk to your kiosk guy.

If you did 2 lines, the sleazy Wireless Advocates rep might manually submit only 1 rebate. After waiting 11 weeks, you'll receive 1 out of the 2 rebates. You'll have to call them again and they might manually send you the 2nd rebate card. This happened to me and another person on SD. He received his 2nd rebate after calling but I'm still waiting for mine.

Did you have to open 3 lines or just 2? (not sure if the one you must open for the buy 2 $600 can count for a BYOD line?)
